EFKA will henceforth issue "express" decisions for pensions with successive insurance in two or more Funds, as well as with the new insurance law 4670/2020, which is effectively coming into force now, the required insurance days are reduced to 1.000 instead 1.500 to apply, and to 300 instead 500 in the last 5 years, while intermediate stages are eliminated with the aim of accelerating the award of pensions.
The new provisions simplify the decision - making process and cover as many applications as possible 13/5/2016 and then and is still pending.
It is estimated that they will come out of the "ice" above 45.000 pending applications for a pension with successive insurance (at least one in three of the arrears of pensions is with two Funds), while those whose application has been rejected are given the opportunity, to come back with news, which will be considered under the most favorable regime.
For successive insurance pensions with 15 years, the condition that the insured have 1.000 days from the total insurance time to the last institution, and claims will be considered based on whether policyholders turn 15 regardless of the Insured Funds, and if they have closed it 67The year will receive the pension. Under the previous regime (par. 5 article 19 law 4387/2016) they should have 4.500 days, of which 1.500 to the latter and of these 500 should be in the last 5 years.
The relevant circular on the basis of which the new ones will be examined and the old applications for retirement with successive insurance will be reviewed was issued yesterday by e-EFKA with clear instructions for the employees of the respective departments in order to speed up the pending decisions..
In the case of insured persons who were initially insured as employees and later as self-employed with the last Fund being the OAEE or the EBRD, remains the 60The year of age as a criterion for examining their application from the previous Funds if they do not meet the requirements of the latter Fund. On the contrary, those who have the OGA as the last Fund but without completing in it the 1.000 insurance days and 300 of these in the last 5 years, will be waiting for 67 before their application is transferred to the previous body. This does not apply, however, to cases with 15 years of successive insurance, as the request will be considered at 67The year from the last Fund.
Insured people need to know that, to grant a pension with successive insurance e-EFKA, must have taken place in the insurance of the last Fund:
* For retirement due to old age 1.000 insurance days in total, from which 300 days in the last five years before the application for retirement or before the termination of the insurance.
* For pension due to disability or death, to be held 600 insurance days at any time before the cessation of the activity or employment or the submission of the retirement application and the provisions of the legislation of the last Fund are fulfilled with the entire period of the successive insurance.
Increases in cases of parallel insurance
The new circular is expected to bring out of the ice and pensions with parallel insurance and, mainly, to "run" immediately the pension increases for thousands of insured who received the basic pension from one Fund (e.g. IKA or Public) and are waiting for either the second contributory pension or the surcharge for the parallel insurance period in another Fund (e.g. IKA and OAEE, or Public and EBRD).
The supplement to the co-insurance pension applies to all pension applications submitted by 13/5/2016 and after, and applications submitted under the old scheme but starting to receive a pension after 13/5/2016.
Ο «Ε.Τ.» είχε αποκαλύψει περιπτώσεις ασφαλισμένων που είναι στο «περίμενε» για την προσαύξηση σύνταξης από παράλληλη ασφάλιση σχεδόν μια τριετία και, although no complex calculations are required, however, the delays continue with the excuse that the "software system" that will issue the surcharges for the double insurance period is not ready. Now that the circular from EFKA has been issued on how pensions will be calculated and how they will be awarded with successive and parallel insurance, there is no excuse for "software" and outstanding pensions should be out soon.

He applied for retirement in October 2019 and wishes to retire independently with the provisions of IKA and with recognition 1.100 fictitious (with patent year 2011).

Is 67 years and seeks to retire due to old age under the provisions of successive insurance. His choices are: a) to receive a pension with the years of insurance of the employee (IKA-EFKA) and with a pension increase for the parallel insurance period of 10 years, b) to retire with insurance in OAEE (25 years) and with a surcharge for the parallel insurance time of 10 years, c) to retire with 32 years of successive insurance (OAEE, IKA-EFKA) and increment for the parallel time of 10 years, which suits him better than the other two options. The pension will be calculated on the basis of pension rights arising from all years of insurance (and surcharge) and the most advantageous - larger amount of pension will be paid.
